Glenda and Rob Towan are a dynamic duo dedicated to making a difference in the lives of others. Since 2020, they have embarked on a joint journey of volunteerism, leaving a trail of positivity and compassion in their wake.

Their decision to volunteer was not merely a choice but a response to a life altering moment – Rob’s cancer diagnosis. Faced with adversity, they turned their experience into an opportunity to help others, discovering along the way that their acts of kindness were not just a service to others but also a source of healing and fulfillment for themselves.

Their volunteer efforts span across various organisations, including the Fraser Coast Wedding Industry, Hervey Bay Pickle Ball Club, Fraser Coast Hospice, Carols by Candlelight, and even public speaking engagements. Each endeavour is fuelled by their shared passion for spreading joy and fostering connections within the community.

One particularly poignant moment stands out in their volunteer journey – a phone call from a woman in Adelaide whose father, battling advanced dementia in Hervey Bay, longed for a moment of joy and connection. Upon hearing their story on television regarding their Good Vibes Kombi, she reached out, hoping for a visit from the cheerful couple.

Arriving in their iconic Kombi, with the infectious melodies of the Beach Boys filling the air, Glenda and Rob witnessed a remarkable transformation. The man, previously slumped in his chair, lit up with excitement as they entered the room. Their visit brought not only a smile to his face but also a sense of joy and vitality that transcended his illness.

For Glenda and Rob, volunteering is about more than just lending a helping hand – it’s about forging meaningful connections and extending care and understanding to those in need. Their commitment to fostering a sense of community and belonging underscores the transformative power of compassion and human connection.

As they continue to spread love and positivity throughout Hervey Bay, Glenda and Rob Towan serve as inspiring examples of the profound impact that volunteerism can have on both individuals and communities alike.

In a world often fraught with challenges, their unwavering dedication to spreading joy and connection serves as a beacon of hope and inspiration for us all.
